VoIP Week in Review: Mobile VoIP Market to Surge

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Welcome to the latest edition of TMCnet’s VoIP Week in Review featuring this week’s top headlines in the VoIP industry.
This week, VoIP provider Alteva (News - Alert) announced it expanded its international porting capabilities to include porting in Canada
As one of North America's largest enterprise hosted VoIP providers, Alteva will make it possible for Canadian companies to have an appearance in the U.S.
U.K.-based Axis Telecom also announced this week that is launched a new VoIP call recording service for SMBs called, “Safeline.”
The new service, according to company officials, is aimed at allowing SMBs to benefit from call recording even if they can’t afford to spend time installing call recording hardware.
The call recording service works via an external server that is linked directly to the businesses’ telephone system and automatically records all inbound and outbound calls as well as stores the audio files on a secure central server.
VoIP phone provider Rebtel also announced this week that it would slash call rates to Chile during the month of March in support and sympathy of the earthquake victims in Chile and their loved ones abroad.
VoIPSwitch also made headlines this week with the announcement that Web video conferencing has been added to their IP-PBX (News - Alert) hosted platform.
With the new service, PBX users that belong to the same PBX account can now communicate with each other using a Video Conferencing extension from the Web Chat menu.
In more VoIP related news, Internet Protocol communications solutions provider 8x8 (News - Alert) Inc. announced this week that it has now linked its VoIP network to that of New Edge Networks’ and their New Edge AX ecosystem of business applications.
Under the partnership, 8x8 can deliver its hosted IP voice and unified communications solutions to business customers over a secure, enterprise class IP network environment. Also, customers can run business-critical applications over the New Edge IP network or select the New Edge MPLS network for end-to-end traffic prioritization, company officials said.
'8x8's partnership with New Edge Networks enables us to better address the VoIP security and performance needs of both SMBs and larger enterprises that require private managed networks to conduct business operations,' Dan Weirich (News - Alert), 8x8 president and chief financial officer, said
Finally, this week, a new report from In-Stat (News - Alert), “Mobile VoIP - Transforming the Future of Wireless Voice,” finds there will be 288 million mobile VoIP users by the end of 2013 with mobile VoIP applications generating annual revenues of $35.2 billion by that time.
